The Waters of Grace

"My mind is a bucket without a bottom, with no spiritual understanding, no desire for the Lord’s Day, ever learning but never reaching the truth, always at the gospel-well but never holding water.

My conscience is without conviction or contrition, with nothing to repent of.

My will is without power of decision or resolution.

My heart is without affection and full of leaks.

My memory has no retention, so I forget easily the lessons learned, and Thy truths seep away.

Give me a broken heart that yet carries home the waters of grace."
